Event Details


September 11







A11Y (Accessibility), Usability and Inclusion: I talk about the differences, concerns and added values of these areas. They have one thing in common: all people benefit from them!

👉🏾 80% Fails Today's products, services and strategies claim to deliver according to the Parreto principle. That is, to provide a solution with 20% effort for 80% of the target group. This is wrong! To even motivate 80% users, it needs almost 100% accessibility! Today's product and service teams fail at that. We try to serve people in far too segmented a way!

👉🏾 External vs. Internal Let's take into account all factors that affect people from inside as well as from outside. Then we have a realistic chance of approaching 100%.

👉🏾 Long-term, Medium-term and Short-term Limitations in accessibility are long, medium or short term. Depending on the circumstances that affect us, we are all disabled!

👉🏾 Permanent, reducible and reversible There are ways and means to make life easier for disabled people! We need to build tools that accelerate the reduction and reversal of disability!

👉🏾 Cognitive load Assumptions that most users are too limited turned out to be correct! Cognitive load acts on our nervous system. This gives, or takes away, our freedom to play to our greatest mental capabilities. Cognitive load causes even people with an IQ of +130 to fail. Digitalisation and automation need more care, openness and humility! Because we are all disabled at certain points in time.

Remember to use the hashtag #DesignForTomorrow when sharing your event experience on social media!

Add To The List

This initiative was started by Randstad UX for the R'UX Network & Community. It escalated quickly and we spread beyond the Randstad. Because there are very important topics in this awareness week, we thought it would be better to reskin the portal without our own branding, and only add our logos to the events we organise ourselves. 

To make this initiative work for as many important voices as possible, we decided to also list other relevant events around the topics and themes of Design for Tomorrow. If you are organising relevant events, please feel free to add them to the list. That way more people can hear about ethics, sustainability, human centered and human centric design and every other important topic in the design world today. 

ABC of experience starts with Accessibility!
